Standard style scaled for low zoom.png
  • English : A modified 'standard' view of OpenStreetMap to reveal coverage worldwide on low zoom levels. Those (0–8) have essentially been created from scaling down tiles (slightly modified and without labels) of zoom level 9 and adding the labels afterwards. This experiment by Frederik Ramm can be viewed as a zoomable map (comparison via “+” on the right); more details of the technical approach.
